Leadership in Sustainability
Celebrating and building on leading practices in sustainability, Council continues to view leadership in this area as a high priority. Sustainability is considered an overall approach to business within the City, not just a term goal area. Advancing green and sustainable initiatives is very important to Council, who also has a keen interest in combating and preparing for climate change. Continuing to build on the City’s sustainability framework, Richmond aims to be a climate prepared City with sustainable resource use, a green-built and natural environment, local agriculture and food, and a leader in sustainable businesses and municipal government.
Council priorities for leadership in sustainability:
4.1 Continued implementation of the sustainability framework.
4.2 Innovative projects and initiatives to advance sustainability.
